France’s far-right National Rally (RN) party will fall short of an absolute majority in the upcoming parliamentary elections, OpinionWay said in a poll published on July 5 for the business daily Les Echos.

A major upset is seen in the parliamentary elections in France. After the first phase of parliamentary elections, the country’s far-right party National Rally under the leadership of Marine Le Pen seems happy with its lead. President Emmanuel Macron’s party has slipped to the third position this time. The dominance of the right-wing party in French politics has brought it to the threshold of power. Marine Le Pen herself said that the Macron group has almost been wiped out. Let us tell you that the parliamentary elections being held in two phases in France will be concluded on July 7.

Will the National Rally Party fall short of a majority?

However, now OpinionWay has said in a poll published on July 5 for the business daily Les Echos that France’s far-right National Rally (RN) party will fall short of an absolute majority in the upcoming parliamentary election. In Sunday’s vote, the RN won 205-230 seats, ahead of the left-wing New Popular Front with 145-175 and President Emmanuel Macron’s centrist bloc with 130-162 seats. A ruling majority requires 289 seats in the National Assembly.

Marine Le Pen is confident of winning

Marine Le Pen, leader of France’s far-right National Rally party, said her party would lead a government only if it gets a clear majority in the second round of elections on Sunday. The party led by Jordan Bardella had won the most votes in the first round of parliamentary elections held on June 30, but did not get enough votes to claim victory. “We cannot accept going into government if we cannot work,” Pen said in an interview with public broadcaster France Inter.
